Akodo Nishi served as Chui in the Lion army prior to her tutelage under Ikoma Munoto. She distinguished herself in a skirmish with the Crane and was considered for enrollment in the Akodo War College. For several months she carried on a secret love affair with her uncle’s hatamoto, Akodo Kafu, but the two decided to put aside their feelings for each other when Nishi’s engagement to Kaiu Yutaka was announced. Due to the intervention of Bayushi Hijikata, Isawa Serizawa, and Mirumoto Katsumoto, Kafu was freed from the oni’s influence before Nishi was murdered by the possessed Kafu.
